The duck merguez brand “Les Thomasines”, sold until yesterday in most supermarkets, should not be eaten after suspected salmonella contamination. “Food poisoning caused by salmonella results in gastrointestinal disorders (diarrhea, vomiting) of sudden onset often accompanied by fever and headaches which generally occur 6 to 72 hours after consumption of the contaminated products. “, write the authorities in the reminder sheet.
The product concerned is therefore the pack of six vacuum-packed duck merguez, sold in Auchan, Carrefour Market, Hyper U, Intermarché, Leclerc and Super U supermarkets between May 30 and June 8, 2022, everywhere in France. The affected lot – 22150303 – has barcode 3700518702751 and has a best before date between June 12 and June 14, 2022.
